Dear School Communities,

CEC1 recommends that you begin collaborating on prioritizing your capital requests now. This should be a collaborative process among school leaders, staff, SLT members, PA/PTA members, and other interested community members. The School Construction Authority (SCA) has indicated that it will only accept capital requests for District 1 from the CEC and not from individual schools, so we will be asking that school leaders submit requests to us as soon as this year’s updated Capital Plan Budget Amendment is released.

Normally, we already would have reached out to school leaders with updates and request forms from the SCA, but we cannot do so until the new Capital Plan Budget Amendment has been issued. We hope to receive it soon and be able to distribute request forms to schools. In the meantime, we urge that you begin the process of meeting as communities to discuss your buildings’ needs, especially as the timeline for submissions in the new year may be compressed.

Please contact us with any questions,
